You've probably noticed that dead or dying bugs end up on their backsides, and that's not just your imagination! It turns out there are some physics at play here.

Real scientists spent real time and real money patiently waiting for fruit flies to fall with their bellies up and then tallied up how many of them lived on to fly another day. Let that sink in for a moment.
Jokes aside though, this is one of those questions that always bothers you, and then you find someone actually explaining it and it is awesome. Thanks for the video!
This explains nothing. If you were in the pushup position and you suddenly died, youll just fall on your stomach, not flip on your back. I saw a big spider outside my front door one night so i hosed it down with pesticide. It was on its stomach when i watched it dying. The next morning it was completely dead in the same exact spot but now on its back. The only explanation is that it intentionally spent whatever energy it had left to turn on its back.
Also you're more likely to know the bug is dead when it's upside down. You might see hundreds off dead bugs still standing up and not know that they're dead, so you assume that only upside down bugs are dead.
That explanation is utterly ridiculous nonsense, the shape of a ladybug such as the one they used in the example, is more like a half sphere, and it is obvious to me that the more stable side of that figure it's the flat side, and the CG is at least visually closer to the flat side
How about, why do bugs end up dead in places you least expect, with nothing to cause it.
You'd think that bugs eats things that are laying around and choke or poisoned because of their interaction in certain environments.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
